The young couple looks happy and in love in the new pictures, which were taken earlier this week at Frogmore House in Windsor. Fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski got the exclusive gig.

“It was an incredible honour to be asked to document this wonderful event, but also a great privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for one another,” Lubomirski said in a statement from Kensington Palace. “I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together.”
